The third full-length album from American reggae outfit New Kingston is due for release on 23rd February. Entitled ‘Kingston City’, it follows the release of 2013’s ‘Kingston University’, and promises once more to mix vocal harmonies, powerful bass and roots/dancehall in a contemporary style. Alongside the New Kingston line-up of brothers Stephen Suckarie, Courtney Panton, Jr. and Tahir Panton, the album is enhanced by the inclusion of their father Courtney Panton Snr on bass, Tribal Seeds’ vocalists Maad T-Ray and E.N Young, Hawaiian singer-songwriter Kimie Miner, the formidable Wailing Souls, Sister Carol and the late legendary Sugar Minott. The lead single ‘Today’, featured here, is a great roots reggae tune in a modern styling and demonstrates the range and power of the band in full flight.
